Double Magnum Barolo DOCG Gattera, Cordero di Montezemolo
Double Magnum Barolo DOCG Gattera, Cordero di Montezemolo
Cordero's 2011 Barolo Bricco Gattera emerges from the highest part of the Gattera vineyard. In this vintage, the two Gattera bottlings aren't as differentiated as they usually are, but that is typical of warmer years. Mocha, chocolate, dark black fruit and smoke wrap around a finish shaped by French oak.
